The Paris-Sorbonne University Press ("Les Presses de l’Université Paris-Sorbonne"/PUPS)
The objective of the Paris-Sorbonne University Press is to publish the personal and collective work of the University’s scientific community and to establish general rules on editing, coherent with the University’s research policy. Close links thus exist between the PhD schools ("écoles doctorales”), and the “PUPS” is one of their privileged sources of scientific expression.
The PUPS directly distributes their work in their retail outlets, but most of the marketing is done through a large distributor, SODIS. International marketing is carried out via Gallimard-Export. The PUPS website presents their complete catalogue: nearly 500 titles for about 50 series. Every year, the PUPS publishes between 50 and 70 works linked to all the university’s key sectors.
